[Found: Combine] Looking for a lawn mower game

Have encountered this game several times in my search for good PD/Shareware software. Now I felt to take a look at it again, but cannot find it anywhere. Have tried search for 'tractor', 'lawn mower' etc with no luck. Seems that it does not have these words in the title.

This is what I can remember:

- Gameplay is similar to Advanced Lawnmower Simulator and the Beavis & Butt-Head game [ Show youtube player ]
- Much better graphics than Advanced Lawnmower Simulator and Beavis & Butt-Head
- PD (or possibly Shareware)
- Viewed from the side
- Has scrolling, but playfield is less than 2 screens
- 1 disk
- You can press fire to cut the grass in a shorter length
- You play with a tractor instead of a lawn mower
- You start in down in the left corner

A game that most people have never heard of I think, so I do not expect any replies

Thanks for you reply,

This looks different from other lawn mower games. Unlike Lawn Mower Simulator is this viewed from the side, and is not a port. Remember now there was some kind of progress bar. But could never get 100% completion.

There also may have been a timer and a place to refuel your tractor. But not really sure.

which way did it scroll? Vertical or Horizontal?

It's not a lawnmower but a tricycle, did you mean this?

Tricycle Race

Good guess, but it's not Tricycle Race either. This is one player only and it scrolls both vertically and horizontally. I'll make a drawing later tonight. Have to go to work now.

FOUND IT!

My description was not very clear and accurate. You don't drive a tractor and it is viewed from above. This is much more fun than all other lawnmower games for the Amiga. Still not sure if this is PD or if it is a Commercial game? It has a publisher but if you judge by quality then this is PD.

Developer: Zuidenveld

Ha, quite a nice little game. Not managed to complete one field yet. lol. I keep damaging my combine harvester. How do you repair it? I also kept running out of fuel but eventually managed to find the diesel tank. Nice.

There is only one field and it is about to finish it as fast as possible. The faster, the higher score you get. The field must be completed within 8 minutes and you get bonus if play on harder difficulty (harder difficulty = more cars etc). You only get the opportunity to enter your name in the highscores if you complete it. You break your combine harvester by drive into that stone (or even touch the walls too much?). To repair it, drive back to the barn. This will cost you time though. The container must be empty before returning back to the barn.

Seems not. Still not sure if this is PD or a Commercial release. It also uses trackloader/NDOS disk, which is not common for PD games. There are plenty of crap in HOL much worse than Combine. Like these text adventures, card games, tetris clones with no sound etc... So guess this could be added too even if PD
